Gregor Walz was named Puget Sound's Director of Athletic Communications in June 2014. He oversees social media efforts, website content, video production, graphic design, photography, gameday statistics, live streaming, archives, and media requests for all 23 Logger teams.
Walz revamped the Loggers’ social media efforts and oversaw the redesign of www.loggerathletics.com. He created Twitter (@PSloggers) accounts and Facebook (/PSloggers) pages for each Logger program, and he launched the Loggers' Instagram page (@PSloggers). Walz also created the Loggers' YouTube channel - Logger Sports Network (LSN) - which features video highlights and student-athlete interviews from nearly every sporting event on campus. LSN produces over 100 videos, annually.
Under Walz's guidance, the Loggers' Twitter page was the second NCAA D-III Twitter account on the West Coast to reach 3,000 followers. The Loggers' Twitter page was also among the first 10 NCAA D-III Twitter accounts in the country to receive a Twitter verification check mark.
Prior to arriving at Puget Sound, Walz spent one year working in athletic communications at NCAA D-I Northeastern University (Boston, Mass.), where he was the primary media contact for women's soccer, swimming and diving, baseball, and the secondary media contact for men's basketball. During this time, Walz was also a gameday statistician for the Harvard men's basketball team. He spent two years as the Graduate Assistant for Athletic Media Relations at NCAA D-III University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Walz's first stint in college athletics was as the Marketing and Promotions Assistant at NCAA D-I Wofford College (Spartanburg, S.C.). Before beginning a career in college athletics, Walz worked for a couple of minor league baseball teams: the Hickory Crawdads (Hickory, N.C.), and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Manchester, N.H.).
Walz is a CoSIDA member, and he has worked in sports information/media relations during events such as the U.S. Open (golf), Beanpot Hockey Tournament, NCAA Division-I Women’s Soccer Tournament, NCAA Division-III Women’s Basketball Tournament, and NCAA Division-III World Series.
Walz earned a B.A. in sports journalism and English from Springfield College (Mass.) in 2009. A native of Waltham, Massachusetts, he currently resides in Tacoma with his dog, Homer.
